Call to Prophethood
Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, was born in the oasis town of Mecca, in the year of 571.
Spread of Faith
Muhammad lived a childhood riddled with sadness and grief. His relatives did not live long. He was a merchant, and was married to another merchant woman named Kadijah. She was rich and powerful.
Muhammad was a very devout man. As he was thinking alone in a cave, he is believed to have a revelation from the Angel Gabriel, to spread a monotheistic faith.
Death of Muhammad
As Muhammad preached openly, and gained followers. Most people rejected Islam, to continue the worship of tribal gods. This unappreciation from the people of Mecca, was enough to drive Muhammad out.
When Muhammad was driven out of Mecca, he traveled to Medina. As he traveled, he spread his faith, gaining more and more followers.
Muhammad died, after establishing a strong base of Islam. He passed away in the year 632, in the coastal city of Medina.
